I hope you are having a wonderful start to the year. This year we will be starting Choir in Week 6 Term 1. Choir consists of interested students in Years 4 – 6.
I will hold ‘auditions’ in class in the next couple of weeks to get a general idea of children’s vocal ranges and tones, and to identify our strengths as a choir. This will help me to select repertoire for the year. It is not a ‘formal audition’ – all children who audition will get in.
Weekly Choir rehearsals will be held on Thursdays, starting at 8.00am sharp and finishing at 8.30am in the Music Room. Choir will commence Thursday, 11th March.
Choir students have a few concerts in which they are required to perform. These include:
- Soirée – 12th August
- Wembley Downs Fair – 30th October
- Potentially, several special assemblies such as Naidoc Week
Singing with their peers can offer children a myriad of benefits. These include lifting mood, a sense of teamwork, increasing neuro-connections that support academic achievement, developing a musical ear and having fun!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
